Energy Efficiency Information Evening: Saving Money with Rebates and Tax Credits

Tuesday, March 26, 2024 at 6:30 p.m.

Barbara Vickery, long-time Richmond resident and volunteer, gives an informal presentation with time for your questions about how you can save money while keeping your home warm and comfortable and your vehicle up to date with the latest technologies. Recently Congress passed legislation that provides many generous tax credits and rebates to weatherize and tighten up your space, purchase energy efficient electric appliances including heat pumps, or acquire an electric or plug-in hybrid car and solar panels. Learn how to take advantage of the incentives, navigate potential obstacles like the upfront cost, and how to tackle these improvements with help from the Inflation Reduction Act and Efficiency Maine.
